Many states have regulations requiring that minors appear in juvenile court when they commit a misdemeanor. If the minor signed the ticket, agreeing to appear in court and comply with the law, it would probably be best to do just that. Failure to appear will result in a bench warrant. Further failure to comply will result in a visit from an officer to haul you to jail so that you'll be required to appear. If you refuse to obey the law, the juvenile court judge can get pretty nasty and suspend your driving privileges, among other options. Just do what you
